Show Up. Speak Up. Don't Take the Bait.

'Let This Moment Be a Comma, Not a Period'

President Obama

What Storm is Brewing in Your Life?

What issue has stopped you in your tracks? Where do you need to gather your resources so you can turn this moment in your life into a comma, not a period? 

Perhaps you're dealing with an every day problem such as:

  • Dealing with a bad boss or work place; 
  • Trying to jump-start your career or finish college so you can get on with making a life; 
  • Dealing with the break up of a marriage or relationship gone bad.

Or perhaps you're dealing with a more overwhelming issue freezing you in place. Perhaps you're one of the millions of men and women upset with the direction the country is going under a new administration and you want to stand up for what you believe. 

What ever it is you need to deal with to move your life forward in a positive direction, keep your strategy for being calm and effective to three simple rules: 

๐Ÿ’šShow Up.
๐Ÿ’šSpeak Up.
๐Ÿ’šDon't Take the Bait.

Show Up

'A simple definition of life: 

The chance you've been waiting for.'

Robert Brault

Speak Up

'Be Impeccable With Your Word. 

Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. 

Avoid using the word to speak 

against yourself or to gossip about others. 

Use the power of your word 

in the direction of truth and love.' 

Don Miguel Ruiz

Don't Take the Bait

'Speak when you are angry

and you'll make the best speech you'll ever regret.' 

Laurence J. Peter

Speak with a Calm, Bright Heart

'The moment we begin to fear the opinions of others 

and hesitate to tell the truth that is in us, 

the divine floods of light and life 

no longer flow into our souls.'

Elizabeth Cady Stanton

I wish to live a life that causes my soul 

to dance inside my body

We are all facing a storm . . .

The cognitive science and linguistics professor joins us to discuss the scientific factors behind the suggestive media messaging used by the Trump administration.

Well said, Sue! And I like "A simple definition of life." Now I have to look up a couple of these new-to-me quotable people.

Susan J Meyerott, M.S. said...

Yes we are all facing a storm, Jim! Thanks for the link to George Lakoff, Cognitive Scientist, interview on PBS. So very important! Language and actions matter. Shift the word focus to 'Public Protections' and argue FOR what you stand for, not against. I will watch the 25 minute PBS interview with Lakoff again--and check out his citizen's communication network to help people think about the proper way to communicate and make a difference. Appreciate the dialogue with you! Now let's get together to talk!

Thanks, Jean. I love the simple definition of life! Robert Brault is so clever! Hugs.

These quotes. Wow! I like them. And these pictures! Wow! How can I get them?! Pins? Tiny pictures? ... ๐ŸŒˆ✌๐Ÿผ

Hi Lindsey!

The art work is mine. You can always copy and paste pics into your pics as jpeg. I'll send an email to you with the pics in them then you can save off that....

Hugs, Sue
